Fall Family Bucket List

fall-family-bucket-listI don’t know about your family, but my family loves fall! The cooler weather, the falling leaves, it’s the perfect time to be outdoors! Every fall, we sit down as a family and come up with a bucket list. We all add our favorite things to do in our favorite season. Here are some ways to have fun with your kids this fall!

Create a fall yard collage: This is a great way to get your kids involved in beautifying your front lawn for the fall season. Materials you will need to create your fall yard collage include hay bales, pumpkins (all sizes), scarecrows, witches, cornucopias, etc. Anything related to fall will look wonderful. Stack your hay bales to create a backdrop. Next, place a huge scarecrow (or witch) on the center of the stack. Then add other complimentary fall accessories like cornucopias, corn stalks, ghosts, etc.

Everything from apple sauce to apple pie to apple crisp, the sky is the limit! Don’t forget to grab some apple cider doughnuts while you are there.

Happy Autumn Cards: Supply each kid with markers, paper, glue, glitter, stickers, etc. Let them make several autumn cards and write a special message on the inside of each one. After any wet appliqués are dried, gather the cards and take them to your local nursing home to distribute among patients.

To help you plan your family’s fall activities, here’s our Fall Family Bucket List! It has everything from visiting a pumpkin patch to hosting a food drive. See how many you can check off this fall!

  1. Love this for families. I like how you are recommending families do stuff outdoors to appreciate the weather! Have you ever looked into Geocaching or Letterboxing?
    Its a great way to take your kids outdoors on a free scavenger hunt through out your city, suburb, neighborhood, etc.
    I guess you could always do the modern Pokémon Go thing but I have no idea how to do that or use that. But Geocaching/letterboxing has been around for many years.
    My girlfriend and I did it during a beautiful spring day in New Orleans and spend the whole afternoon discovering hidden treasures (aka: Caches or Letterboxes) while also discovering hidden beauty and history in the city I was born in. Plus it was nearly 100% free to do. (we spent a couple of dollars on starbucks and a streetcar pass cause we wanted to have a day of simple cheap fun)
    Hope that is another one you can add for families!!
    Cheers,
    Eric
